Span Conference
London, 28th October 2014

Single track developer conference about scaling


The developers who spoke at Span 2014

About Span

Span is a practical developer conference about building scalable systems.

There's a single track and each talk will focus either on sharing practical knowledge or a story of past-mistakes and how you can avoid them. You won't find a sales-pitch masquerading as a talk.

Topics you can expect to see on the programme include scaling, big data, high availability, functional programming, distributed sytems, APIs and NoSQL, all with a no-nonsense promise. Here's our code of conduct.
